uae vs ire Match Prediction & Analysis

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will face off Ireland in the second T20I of the three-match series at the International Cricket Council (ICC) Academy on Friday.

The home team will be coming in this fixture with low confidence after suffering a seven-wicket defeat in the series opener just a day earlier at the same venue.

The management will be hoping to push the players to produce a much better display which is required to stay alive in the competition.

On the other hand, the visitors will be coming in this fixture with high confidence after a clinical performance in the first T20I.

The management will be hoping that the players will continue producing similar kinds of performances in the remaining matches as well.

Teams Preview

United Arab Emirates Preview

After suffering a thrashing defeat in the first T20I, the United Arab Emirates might look to tweak their playing XI for the match on Friday.

The management will be concerned with the performance of the players, especially while playing at home where the side have already suffered six defeats in 10 T20Is in the last two years.

In the batting department, the home team will be relying on openers Chirag Suri, Waseem Muhammad, wicketkeeper-batter Vriitya Aravind and Muhammad Usman to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Kashif Daud, Sanchit Sharma, Zahoor Khan along with the spin trio of Basil Hameed, Rohan Mustafa and Ahmed Raza to produce timely breakthroughs.

United Arab Emirates Predicted Playing XI:

Waseem Muhammad, Chirag Suri, Chundangapoyil Rizwan, Vriitya Aravind (wk), Muhammad Usman, Rohan Mustafa, Kashif Daud, Ahmed Raza (c), Basil Hameed, Sanchit Sharma, Zahoor Khan

Ireland Preview

After producing a near-perfect performance in the series opener at the same venue, Ireland are unlikely to make any significant changes in the playing XI for the second T20I.

The management will be hoping that by producing similar kinds of performances, the Irish team will be benefitted for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers where they are placed in Group B alongside Namibia, Sri Lanka and Netherlands.

In the batting department, the visitors will be heavily relying on star all-rounder Paul Stirling, veteran Kevin O'Brien, captain Andy Balbirnie, left-hander George Dockrell, middle-order batter Gareth Delany and Curtis Campher to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Josh Little, Mark Adair, Campher along with the spin trio of Simi Singh and Ben White to dismantle the home team’s batting lineup.
